Windows 7: This copy of Windows is not genuine strange

This copy of Windows is not genuine strange

It's strange because (i really checked many times) this watermark (and popup on startup) appears ONLY when i have no internet connection (it is closed or doesn't work - doesn't matter; just no internet access).

That is really weird, oh now i'm on x86 OEM ultimate, btw.

Does any1 has this probleM?

Very annoying

If you are not legit, you will know in 30 days. At first you will lose windows, every 2 hours. Until, finally, you will not have it at all. Where did you get your copy of windows? Were you able to activate?

Actually...I purposely let Windows 7 Ultimate x64 RTM go into non-genuine status (I went past the 30 days) for up to another month afterwards...

Besides the little prompt about non-genuine software at logon and the fact that I was stuck with a black background and a watermark...it never shutdown on me nor were any features disabled...
